In 2015 the charity, The Great Stone Bridge Trust, took over control of approximately 16 acres of land and water meadow running from the River Eden to the east to the edge of the Lingfield recreation ground to the west.
NWKCP assists the GSBT annually with several volunteer task days to help maintain and enhance the water meadows for wildlife. Typical tasks include scrub clearance, the construction of bug ‘mansions’, gathering up fallen timber, removing young oak saplings and cutting off the lower branches of more mature trees to allow sunlight to penetrate more effectively. We have also put up five owl nesting boxes comprising one for barn owls, two for tawny owls and two for little owls.
We also work with the children of Radnor House School, Sundridge, on their annual Make a Difference Day, when the children come to help at the meadows.
